Effective May 1, 2020, the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) assumed the role formerly held by the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence (FCADV) to administer all domestic violence services in Florida. DCF is committed to the continuation of uninterrupted life-saving domestic violence services for survivors and their families. Moving forward, DCF will maintain operational and financial control of the system of care, and competitively rebid for services within the next 12 to 18 months.
